[sc. Something said] proverbially. For previously the rich used to bathe together with the poor in the baths. Aristophanes in Anagyrus [says]: "but everyone should bathe together and share the sponges."[1] That is, [the poor] should go in with the rich, so that they need not take sponges but use theirs.

Other lexica too characterise this as proverbial (references at Photius pi267), but it is not in most of the the collections. Compare in any event pi 337, with alternative versions of the headword (and different senses, accordingly, of the proverb).
